| Good, you're not afraid of meeting me! No sword this time, fake or otherwise. New doggie though.|
One thing about my new way of eating...cutting way back on the number of different things you eat led to an increase in palate sensitivity. IOW, all I need or like on my food these days is salt and pepper, where I used to be a garlic & onions freak. This translates to beer in terms of hoppiness -- I like my beer a LOT milder these days...when I was in Thanet in December, I found the Courage and Harvey's to be nearly overwhelming. The sorts of stuff I used to crave -- no thanks.
Good timing, actually, since as they say, your palate becomes less sensitive as you age. Guess I'm getting younger.
